Wilson trail decals will aid responders
The Ream Wilson Trail now has emergency response system decals, similar to those in place along the Pinellas Trail. The decal numbers are in Pinellas County's computer-aided dispatch system, so emergency responders will be able to pinpoint where help is needed. The decals are bright yellow and are placed directly on the trail about every 300 feet. Each decal features a unique location number and a phone number to call to report maintenance problems along the trail. The decals begin north of Cooper's Bayou Park between Clearwater and Safety Harbor with RWT-01, and continue to the Long Center with RWT-81. The decals pick back up at the beginning of the Memorial Causeway section on Turner Street with RWT-155 and will end at Pier 60 with RWT-199. Once the Druid Trail section is complete, it will also have decals numbered RWT-82 through RWT-154. .
